FALLS CHURCH, Va. — The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors—National Association (PHCC) has announced the launch of a state legislative and regulatory tracking service that allows PHCC members and state and local leaders to monitor active bills and regulations affecting their state or geographic region.

Accessed through PHCC’s website, this online system gives PHCC members and chapter leaders the opportunity to monitor the bills and regulations that impact them so they can directly engage with their state representatives on related issues. Licensing, workforce development, unfair regulations, and code developments are among the crucial issues currently impacting the plumbing-heating-cooling industry.

“With increased legislative and regulatory activity in recent years, it’s more important than ever that our members and chapters have a quick and easy way to see a synopsis of relevant issues being discussed in their areas,” said Chip Greene, PHCC president. “We are very excited to offer this new online technology to help chapters be even more engaged with the legislative process in their states.”

Through this new service, PHCC members and chapter leaders can view an interactive map, click on their state, and view the issues affecting the industry. The author, history, status, and even a vote count of the listed items can all be accessed. In addition, a weekly report of new items will be provided.

“Based on the available information, PHCC chapters can determine a plan of action to support or oppose laws or regulations affecting their businesses,” Greene said. “Our national office is ready to help with these grassroots efforts.”
